The new Lamborghini Urus luxury cars will be assembled in Italy but made almost entirely of Slovak parts.

The Sme daily reported that Volkwagen, which owns the Italian carmaker, had originally planned to produce the whole vehicle in Slovakia but shifted its production to Italy to take advantage of the country’s tax reliefs.

The body and wheels of the new SUV model will be produced by the Bratislava-based carmaker Volkswagen Slovakia, which already produces bodywork for the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Bentley Bentayga.
